The paper introduces a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) driving simulator with the implementation of a look-ahead cruise control considering forward road information. The vehicle dynamics are simulated real-time in the high fidelity heavy duty vehicle simulation environment TruckSim, while the proposed look-ahead control algorithm also runs real-time on dSPACE MicroAutoBox II. The latter functions as a vehicle electronic control unit (ECU) and is used for rapid control prototyping (RCP), hence the proposed look-ahead driver assistance system can be tested and tuned in a real-time HIL vehicle simulator before installing dSPACE MicroAutoBox II in a real vehicle.
